Regular Expression – Prevent ALL CAPS words in Javascript

/\b[A-Z]{4,}\b/     This expression will detect whole words of at least 4 characters that are composed entirely of uppercase letters.

/[A-Z]{4,}/    This expression will detect four consecutive uppercase letters used anywhere in a string.  I prefer to use this one for text validation because I cannot think of a genuine case where a person would need have four or more uppercase letters used alongside lowercase letters.
